Purple Pixie® Loropetalum

Weeping Loropetalum chinense 'Peack' PP18441

With its dwarf size and weeping habit, Purple Pixie® is just the plant we've been crying for. It grows only 1 to 2 feet tall by 4 to 5 feet wide. It's a great choice for a ground cover, but it can also add vibrant color to hanging baskets, window boxes, and other containers. Showy pink flowers combined with rich purple foliage will move you to tears.
